All good up to the recovery part
I'm new to android but have flashed lots of Windows Mobile type devices in my time.
I have unlocked the WFS bootloader sucessfully. I put the device into fastboot mode, connect to USB and open the CMD window. I type in the command and successfully write the recovery file (in about 3 seconds?). Now this is where progress halts for me:
If I got into bootloader, and then recovery, the phone vibrates once and displays the white screen with the HTC logo. And there it remains! I left it for quite a while (say 20-30 mins) just in case it was doing something that took time but alas, no.
I can remove the battery and reboot into bootloader, OR get back into "normal use" with a normal restart, so the device isn't bricked. I just can't seem to get into recovery. I've followed this and another tutorial from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1878031
both saying pretty much the same thing.
Have I missed an obvious step please? Everything looks like it's executed correctly, but I seem a little stuck. Do I need a new Kernel to get into recovery? That makes no sense to me, but I repeat: I'm new to Android!
This is a WFS on UK TESCO network, 2.3.5 ROM installed from the factory, HTC sense.
ok - another nooB - please be gentle. Some call it asking stupid questions; others call it learning. ;-D
